Hillary's got a great voice and I don't just mean her vocals. The intro is beautifully crafted, setting us up for the actualities. I think the music was just a little too new agey, but that's personal preference. "Ripple" would have worked well.
That beach in Spain with all those flat rocks comes to life with Jerry's easy going narrative.
Skipping stones. Great piece.

This is such a gratifying portrait and it does what all effective portraits do: use one pixle of someone's being to create a larger, more textured picture. In understanding Jerry's compulsion to skip rocks we get a renewed understanding of psychology, a renwed appreciation for the good old human spirit and renewed faith in the mysterious ways in which this world works. The simplicity of the production is nice. This is elegantly edited: we are allowed to take in a lot of profundity without being told that it is profound. If you have the time broadcast this, it's timeless.

But I digress. I think PD's are safe with anything Hillary Frank feels comfortable putting out there, and especially if it's aired nationally on TAL. So you could go in blind here and be okay, but don't, it's an excellent piece that is fun to listen to.
